The AACVPR National Convention set a new record for attendance this year with over 1,100 participants.  We were hosted by the lovely city of Charleston, South Carolina.  We had a large variety of education sessions offered and were treated to some wonderful vendor functions located around the city.  We had intriguing key note speakers and everyone felt that they took away “something new” from our experience; CMS updates, program accreditation, new PAD guidelines for cardiac rehab, pulmonary rehabilitation charge master struggles for hospitals across the nation that are resulting in low reimbursement…….. the list goes on!  And, MACVPR was recognized for our 30th year anniversary!!  I want to personally thank all the Maryland attendees and offer any assistance to those who couldn’t attend and may have questions concerning some of the great education we were able to absorb.  Please feel free to reach out to any leadership member on our team!
